Most docs will tell you to wait a minimum of 6 months before TTC again, but my doc recommends more like 18 months.

Welcome to the board, most doctors will tell you to wait a minimum of 12 months before ttc again, this has nothing to do with you having had a c-section but with the fact that your body needs time to replenish the lost vitamins and minerals, blood loss as well as hormones. If you are wanting to try for a VBAC the longer you wait between births the better but it all depends on the type of uterine incision you have. Most doctors will give a mom the go ahead to start TTC sooner if there were infertility issues with the first pg or if the mom is over 30 years old, but for the most part it is standard for doctors to tell moms to wait a minimum of 12 months between pg's regardless of vag or c-section birth.

Hope that helps
